The National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS), based in San Francisco, proposes to renovate and rehabilitate Building 640 in the Presidio as an Interpretive Center.

Building 640 is the original site of the Fourth Army Intelligence School during World War 2. Americans of Japanese ancestry learned skills in language translation and battlefield interrogation, while their families remained interned in camps throughout the West.

To ensure preservation of Building 640 as a symbol of American principles of democracy, TBA West assisted with a Critical Project Proposal submittal to the Presidio Trust, Historical Significance Report and Strategic Plan to secure a lease for the building.
